Can Dogs Destroy Pet Artificial Grass?

How Artificial Grass Stands Up to Canine Activity - TT 2

One of the most common questions we get from dog owners considering artificial grass is: Will my pup destroy the turf? It’s a valid concern – after all, dogs are known for their enthusiastic digging, chewing, and rough play. 

The good news is, with a professional artificial grass installation from TexasTurf, your lawn can withstand just about anything your furry friend throws at it or on it. Here’s why our artificial grass is virtually dog-proof:

1. Materials With Exceptional Durability

TexasTurf artificial grass is made from high-quality synthetic materials that are designed to hold up against heavy foot traffic, extreme weather, and yes, even the most rambunctious canines. The blades are constructed from durable polyethylene or nylon fibers that resist tearing, matting, and fading. 

The backing of the grass is equally tough, made from a combination of woven and mesh polypropylene that provides excellent drainage while preventing your pup from digging through to the base materials underneath. With this sturdy construction, your artificial lawn will keep its lush, natural appearance for years to come, no matter how much your dog plays on it.

2. Superior Drainage Capabilities

Another key feature that makes TexasTurf artificial grass dog-friendly is its superior drainage capabilities. Our turf systems are installed with a permeable backing and a base layer of crushed stone or sand that allows liquids to quickly drain through. This means when your dog urinates on the lawn, the liquid won’t pool on the surface or soak into the grass fibers.

Instead, it will drain through the turf and into the base materials, where it can safely percolate into the soil underneath. This drainage efficiency helps prevent odors and bacteria growth, keeping your lawn hygienic and smelling fresh. Plus, with no muddy spots or soggy patches, your dog can enjoy the lawn in any weather without making a mess of your house afterwards.

3. Stain and Odor Resistance 

Speaking of messes, TexasTurf artificial grass is also highly resistant to stains and odors often associated with pet waste. The synthetic grass blades are non-porous, so they won’t absorb liquids or trap odors the way natural grass does. And since the turf dries quickly after washing, there’s less opportunity for stains to set in.

Of course, you’ll still want to pick up solid waste promptly and hose down the area afterwards to keep your lawn looking and smelling its best. But if you do miss a spot here and there, rest assured our turf can handle it. For any stubborn odors, we recommend deodorizing with a natural, pet-safe solution like the ones we covered in our previous blog post.
